Arkeologiturné

Vacation, what to do when on vacation? Why not go and listen to the information about Sandby borg this evening? At least if you are living in southern Sweden. Today, at 17.00, at Hatten in Malmö (http://www.farihatten.se). The story behind Sandby borg contains everything you want to see in Vikings and Game of Thrones, and more, but for real. Violence, war, archaeology. It is a very competent crew of archaeologists who are running the project.

 

With us it is a part of the ATLAS project. And it is mainly Ricardo working on it, but Maja is also involved at this point. We have been on the material for about a year now, maybe a little more. Iron age material from this part of the world is usually not particularly well preserved. At least not when it comes to DNA. And Sandby Borg is no exception. It has taken some extra effort to squeeze out the DNA from the bones, but Ricardo is getting there. Maybe, by this fall / winter, we are ready to pull it all together. When we get there, we will start to engage the proper archaeologists from the project (Helena, Clara, Ludvig, and there are more good people from the field), and of course our own archaeologists and geneticists. Imagen the war-room we will have on Sandby Borg. Violence, war, archaeology…

Sandby borg was not a good place to be at one and a half millennia ago…
